Mapping Early American Elections

13th Congress: New Jersey 1813

New Jersey elected four Federalists and two Democratic-Republicans to the Thirteenth Congress.

New Jersey switched to a district system for electing members to Congress. Each district elected two members.

In 1814, a special election was held in which Thomas Bines was elected to replace Jacob Hufty, who had died.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Lewis Condit Democratic-Republican 7,185 38.5%
1 Thomas Ward Democratic-Republican 7,133 38.2%
1 Jacob S. Thompson Federalist 2,110 11.3%
1 John M. Cumming Federalist 1,814 9.7%
2 James Schureman Federalist 6,852 28%
2 Richard Stockton Federalist 6,826 27.9%
2 Henry Southard Democratic-Republican 5,410 22.1%
2 James Morgan Democratic-Republican 5,342 21.9%
3 William Coxe Federalist 5,029 49.8%
3 Jacob Hufty Federalist 4,996 49.5%

In most cases, only candidates who received more than 5 percent of the vote in a district are reported. Other candidates are reported as a group, but only if they in aggregate received more than 5 percent of the vote. In addition, percentages for each district may not add up to 100 percent due to rounding. The term Dissenting Republican includes various breakaway factions of the Democratic-Republican party.
